As December 23, 2012 approaches, many Americans eagerly await the moment when Hades will emerge from the Underworld to recklessly devour raw egg. Until then, experience manmade terror with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one admission to The Haunted Mill and one day of unlimited 3-D glow-in-the-dark mini golf at Purple Planet (up to a $20 value). The Haunted Mill, situated on the same property as Purple Planet in Belmont, is scheduled to open its creaky doors every weekend from September 24–October 31.
Housed within a century-old building, The Haunted Mill stirs up 20,000 square feet of ghouls, monsters, movie effects, animations, and other soul-shaking spectacles. From dimly lit catacombs to vegetarian-vexing butcher quarters, the mill has something spine-tickling for every age, phobia, and dietary preference. Explore the far reaches of the fear factory and greet all 40 of the living, breathing, and mostly bleeding performers along the way. This is the 13th year that The Haunted Mill has kicked up shrieks and screams—mark the unlucky milestone by wearing your suit made of broken mirror glass and anti-four-leaf clovers.
Follow up frightful encounters with unlimited rounds of mini golf on Purple Planet's 3-D glow-in-the-dark course. Dressed up with tombstones, mummies, and witches, the course combines the thrills of sinking a hole in one with the chills of getting two holes in the neck from unsportsmanlike Draculas. Because the course is black-lit and 3-D, all active golfers will get a double dose of ghastly goodness and a triple dose of dimensional perspective. Welcome the witching season by scaring yourself with your excellent putter aim at Purple Planet.
The Haunted Mill
An abundant number of recreational activities fill the space at Purple Planet 3-D Mini Golf. With black lights illuminating patches of neon paints, the indoor and always air-conditioned cooled mini-golf course bends the mind with challenging greens and mind-bending visuals such as aliens and floating satellites. As they navigate the course’s vortex tunnel and fog-filled corridors, golfers wear 3-D glasses, making obstacles appear to pop out and transforming every hole into an even deeper hole. Purple Planet visitors can also hone their billiards skills with games of pool or try their hand at the games at an on-site arcade.
